Tests will be conducted at prototypes of pots and pans for electric cookers
Next Tuesday the new prototypes of pots and pans for induction stoves will be submitted to tests by the National Institute of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (INER for its Spanish acronym), said Alexis Valencia, undersecretary of Industrial Development from the Ministry of Industry and Productivity (Mipro for its Spanish acronym).
Valencia said that the kitchenware must pass two types of tests: to have enough ferromagnetic components and when heating water it has the power specified by each burner.
From today, the 10 companies that submitted proposals to participate in the process must deliver prototypes that consist on three pots, its lids and a pan.
On June 25 the validated prototypes will be published, according to the schedule of Mipro.
